This is a good hotel for visiting Indians. The staff is very polite and co-operative always ready to help. Most of the staff members know Hindi/Punjabi/Bangla/English as such very easy to communicate. The only drawback is that Wi-fi facility is not free and charges are very high.

Booked the hotel just a few days to family christmas trip. We arrived early morning (5.30am) after long intercontinental flights to a somewhat less than friendly welcome. Our rooms were not immediately ready, keeping us in the reception area for about 2 hours! About the best plus for this "3-star" hotel is its location and proximity to local shops and... More

Staying in The Creek

Neighborhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
